As the week in music comes to a close, HYPEBEAST has rounded up the best projects for the latest installment of Best New Tracks.

This week brings together industry veterans with emerging artists. Brockhampton released back-to-back albums, The Family and TM, while YSL Records’ Yung Kayo dropped the new single “150.” Benny Sings and Kenny Beats teamed up for an exciting explosion of production and lyricism on new song “The World” and PinkPantheress kept it chill on the track “Do you miss me?”

Yung Kayo – “150”

YSL Records signee Yung Kayo shared the first cut from his upcoming project, Nineteen. Following his widely-celebrated debut album DFTK, the first song from the roll out of his new endeavor intertwines hyperpop-style production with Kayo’s unique rap-yelling sound.

Brockhampton – The Family

For months, Brockhampon has been teasing The Family as the final album they’ll release before going on an indefinite hiatus. In a surprising move, albeit typical for the unorthodox music collective, the band decided to follow-up on The Family with yet another LP, TM, released just a day later. “All That” stands apart from other tracks on The Family, with lighter and simpler production against Brockhampton’s usual eclectic style.

Kelela – “On the Run”

In tandem with announcing Raven, her first album in six years, Kelela gave fans their first taste of the LP, which will be out in February, with new single “On the Run.” “I started this process from the feeling of isolation and alienation I’ve always had as a black femme in dance music, despite its Black origins,” Kelela said about the forthcoming LP. “Raven is my first breath taken in the dark, an affirmation of Black femme perspective in the midst of systemic erasure and the sound of our vulnerability turned to power.”

Romy x Fred Again – “Strong”

Romy has been performing “Strong” at festivals over the past year but only just released the song on streaming services. Teaming up with her friend Fred again.., the powerful DJ duo delivers an emotionally deep dance track celebrating club culture.

Rich Brian x $NOT – “Vivid”

Produced by Rich Brian himself, “Vivid” hears the Indonesian rapper experiment with interjecting musical sounds, from a guitar lick to a loop of flute, into his hard-hitting raps. $NOT joins in to assist the rapper in a volley of bars, melodically traded back and forth.
